A Year 10 pupil from Christ’s Hospital, who appealed to the local community to donate Lego bricks to complete an ambitious project, has received a welcome cash boost from local business, D.W. Nye in Kingsfold.
14-year-old Levi, who has been interested in Lego and making things all his life, is attempting to build a large model of his school and requires an estimated 60,000 bricks to complete the replica 19th century building.
Rex Nye, who is Managing Director at builders’ merchant D.W. Nye, and is a keen Lego fan himself, spotted Levi’s story in the local news and felt compelled to assist. He said: “I’m a huge fan of Lego, and of course construction. When I saw Levi’s quest to recreate what I consider such a beautiful building and one of our local landmarks, I couldn’t help but immediately think it would be great if our company could assist with funds. I’m really looking forward to seeing the end result of all Levi’s hard work.”
Levi is hoping to have his project completed during 2020. The School and Levi have thanked Mr Nye for his kind support and offered him an invitation to the unveiling.
